I know what MikTeX means but don't understand why it was even mentioned in the error message.

Schremmer may very well be using an ancient latexmk! :-) He can get an updated version with installation instructions as Latexmk435TeXShop.zip from <https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10932738/index.html>.

After this pdfTeX is reporting some details of the success, generating a PDF file. And finally TeX reports that it has finished writing to the log file. (And sometimes the \listfiles command adds to the final output.)

It simply means that he shouldn't be looking at the very end of the Console output to see the message that is printed to the Console. Nothing more.
